Blood Orange Margarita
There are few drinks that I enjoy at the end of the week as much as a margarita. When blood oranges are in season (end of December - early March), I use their intensely puckering sharp juice in place of some of the lime in a traditional margarita. If you have an hour to kill, add the mix to an ice cream maker for a frozen margarita (like an adult slushy and just as fun).
sea salt, to coat the rim of the glasses
60ml blood orange juice
40ml lime juice, plus a wedge to run around the rim of the glasses
Run a lime wedge around the rim of 4 chilled glasses and dip each one onto a saucer scattered with sea salt to dust the rims. Fill each one with ice.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients and shake well. Pour into the glasses and serve immediately, with a wedge of blood orange or lime if you like.
